Google X Development Center Is Going To Establish in Visakhapatnam

This is claimed to be the first such association in the world to provide wireless internet connection at a higher speed of up to 20Gbps and to a distance of up to 20km.

He said Andhra Pradesh Economic Development Board (APEDB) will use X's FSOC links to help bring fast, reliable internet access to more people across the state.

Google is talking up a new technology that it is testing out to help Project Loon bring connectivity to unconnected regions.

According to an APEDB statement here, the IT Minister met scientist Astro Teller, took a demo ride on Waymo (X's driverless car), and toured the FSOC technology clean room. FSOC boxes can simply be placed kilometers apart on roofs or towers, with the signal beamed directly between the boxes to easily traverse common obstacles like rivers, roads and railways.

These FSOC links will form part of the high-bandwidth backbone of the network, connecting rural and remote areas across the state. The links will fix gaps in the access points now available like cell-towers and Wi-Fi hotspots that are used by thousands of people.

The approach is known as free space optical technology, which has proven hard to implement in the past, but Alphabet seems confident it has solved the problems.

Less than 20 per cent of people in Andhra Pradesh now have access to broadband connectivity.

Speaking at the collaboration ceremony in the United States today, Nara Lokesh, Minister for Information and Technology, Government of Andhra Pradesh, remarked, "The Government of Andhra Pradesh is committed to bring high speed Internet and broadband connections to about 12 million households and 1,30,000 enterprises (govt. and private) by March 2019".

Baris Erkmen, who is leading the effort inside X, said his team is "piloting a new approach" to overcome the challenges, but he did not specify the software and hardware advancements. A small group of Google engineers and experts will work out of Andhra Pradesh to help roll out the project in 2018.
